A kid on my street hung himself in the park next to my house 20 minutes before I walked through it. I didn’t even know he lived in that house. Now I stare at that bar above the swing set every time I go in. A man walking his dog found him there. That man will be affected by that the rest of his life.
Do you guys ever think about the people who have nothing to do with you now, getting to know you once it’s over? Like maybe the paramedics? Or ME? Maybe someone who hears what happened to you and it affects them in some way even though they never knew you? The one who finds you. You’re going to be linked with people forever. They’ll remember you. You’ll influence them. But you’ll never know them.
